Thanks Matt.  But my problem is that qdiskd can't ever start UNLESS there's
already a quorum.   ccsd simply won't talk to it until after there's quorum.  So
the qdisk keeps quorum once both nodes are up if one later dies.  But a single
node and can never get quorum alone because qdisk can't start and add its vote.
